What is FUE Hair Transplant?

FUE hair transplant, also known as Follicular Unit Extraction or Excision is one of the most effective hair restoration techniques for many hair loss problems. FUE, one of the most popular techniques for hair transplant Turkey, is a modern method that does not require a strip of donor tissue. Since it is one of the less invasive techniques not involving stitches or linear scars compared to other techniques, most men and surgeons worldwide prefer FUE method for hair restoration. Based on the research by ISHRS, over 90% of hair implants surgeons choose to perform the procedure with an Follicular Unit Extraction.

So, what are the steps to perform Follicular Unit Extraction? During the procedure, the grafts are extracted one by one with micromotor. Canals, where hair follicles will be placed, are opened with Steel or Sapphire blades. In implemantation phase, hair follicles will be placed to the canals.

FUE method is much more beneficial when the patient suffers from advanced hair loss. In the Follicular Unit Extraction technique, the maximum number of grafts can be up to 5.000, which means FUE can restore the larger parts of the scalp in a single session.

How Does FUE Hair Transplant Works?

Follicular Unit Extraction is the preferable technique providing both males and females with successful results. The popularity of FUE comes from the natural-looking of the newly transplanted hair. Depending on the extent of hair loss, FUE takes 6 to 8 hours. And it involves these main steps:


The surgeon determines the patient's case during the consultation by considering the cause of hair loss, type of hair loss, the likelihood of hair loss progression over future years, hair type (thick or thin), the patient's expectations, age, gender, and medical history.
During the consultation, the hairline is drawn based on the natural hairline and the patient's wishes. The surgeon analyzes the donor and the recipient area; decides how many hair follicles the patient needs.
All the necessary pre-op tests (HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C) are performed; the patient's medical history is viewed by medical experts.
Consultation is one of the significant parts of the procedure. The patients need to share their expectations with the surgeon without any hesitation. MCAN's surgeons are patients' guides to give realistic opinions and the best hair transplant treatment.


FUE Operation Recovery Time

The recovery part of the procedure, which is the essential phase of the FUE hair implantation surgery determining the fate of the successful results, starts after the surgery. Because the procedure is less invasive, it is not expected to have so much pain and discomfort after the patient completes the operation. However, mild pain, swelling, bruising, blood clots, and redness will likely happen in the first few days after the surgery. However, they are temporary, and the surgeons prescribe the necessary medicines to minimize these side effects of the treatments and blood clots are cleaned in the first hair wash by the nurses.

After the surgery, protecting the scalp and avoiding any movements that dislocate the hair follicles is essential. After hair loss surgery patients can return to their work within 5-7 days. FUE recovery time requires a short time; however, the best results are seen gradually. Therefore, it is recommended to follow the doctor’s instructions carefully.

Although FUE surgery can be a successful treatment for hair loss, there are some restrictions on what it can accomplish.

  • Instant results: It takes time for transplanted hair to grow and achieve the desired thickness and density. It may take several months before patients see noticeable results.
  • A full head of hair: Hair implant surgery can restore hair to areas that have experienced significant hair loss, but it may not create a full head of hair if there is not enough donor hair available.
  • A permanent solution: Hair loss may continue in other areas of the scalp where transplantation is not applied. Additional surgeries may be needed to maintain the desired hair density.
  • A pain-free experience: While modern hair restoration techniques are relatively painless, discomfort and swelling may be experienced during and after the procedure. However, these side effects are mild and can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

Patients can observe the newly transplanted hair growing day by day even 1 week after the hair transplantation. Hair transplant is a long-running process. There are some healing phases that the transplanted hair go through, such as adaptating. Generally, patients can expect to see around 30-40% of the final results within 3-6 months after the surgery and approximately 70-80% within 12 months. It takes about 18 months for the final results to be visible, when patients can see the full growth and thickness of the transplanted hair.

FUE hair transplant lasts for lifetime. Independent from the technique, hair transplant enable hair follicles in donor area to be moved to receding and balding parts. Hair follicles in donor area are resistant to any change and will protect its nature which enables a healthy growth.

FUT also known as Follicular Unit Transplantation removes a strip from the scalp, afterwards hair follicles are seperated one by one and then transplantation phase will start. Due to removing a strip from the donor area a linear scar will be left at the back of the head.
In FUE technique surgeon will remove hair follicles one by one from the donor area with a help of a micromotor. After incision, separated hair follicles will be placed to the canals. FUE leaves no linear scar at back of the head.

FUE may leave scars, although they are usually tiny and less noticeable than the scars other hair restoration techniques leave. The scars from FUE are caused by the tiny incisions in the donor area to extract the hair follicles. These incisions usually heal quickly, and surrounding hair growth can conceal the small circular scars left behind.

Yes, they can. FUE method is an effective solution to restore hair loss and provides both males and females with natural-looking hair permanently.
